Program Description

Game Plan: College serves students in ninth through twelfth grades. Students participate in interactive college access focused workshops and individualized one-on-one advising services. Workshops are offered both at the Center and in the community. Advising sessions are personalized and flexible, with office hours established based on student availability. Students may participate in as many or as few Game Plan: College services as they wish. Students begin their involvement through an intake meeting to identify each studentâ??s needs and goals. Led by Emily K staff and supported by the programâ??s Teen Advisors, Game Plan: College students receive information in four key areas of college readiness: academics, testing, financial aid, and the admissions process. Through scheduled workshops and open advising sessions, students access support with: identifying options after high school, understanding academic standards for college admission, finding the right college fit, understanding financial aid, and navigating the college admissions process.
